Assassin's Creed makes an appearance at E3, even without a game this year

New footage from Assassin's Creed debuted ahead of its Dec. 21 premiere at Ubisoft's E3 press conference today. Watch that above for some more jumping, climbing and stealth-ing from star Michael Fassbender.

Movie producer Frank Marshall took the stage to intro the clip, explaining that the film mixes up "the old with the familiar." The film draws on the game's mythology and combines it with an original story, he said, which is discussed in the behind-the-scenes interviews featured in the video.

Our first look at Assassin's Creed came last month during Jimmy Kimmel Live. We later found out that, while Fassbender will play both Callum Lynch and a time-traveling assassin, the majority of the film will take place in the present day.

Ubisoft is focusing on the Hollywood adaptation of its action franchise in lieu of launching a new game this year. The series has been put on hold until at least 2017, although a VR title based on the film is in the works.
